CHECKLIST SIX MONTHS BE­FORE THE DAY

New Zealand Weddings Planner - - Entertainment -

De­cide on the mood you are hop­ing to cre­ate with your mu­sic.

Re­search per­form­ers – ask friends, use the in­ter­net and check out live shows. Lis­ten to a few songs be­fore mak­ing any book­ings.

Se­cure your band or DJ as soon as pos­si­ble: the most pop­u­lar acts will be booked out well in ad­vance.

Check if your venue has space for a dance­floor, and whether you need to hire any equip­ment such as speak­ers or mi­cro­phones.

TWO MONTHS BE­FORE

If you’re cre­at­ing your own playlist, start putting it to­gether now.

ONE MONTH BE­FORE

Re­con­firm your band or DJ and give them your track list.

ON THE DAY

Nom­i­nate some­one to en­sure your mu­si­cians have wa­ter avail­able. Be sure to pro­vide food if they’ll be per­form­ing for an ex­tended pe­riod.
